The Škoda plant in Mlada Boleslav, CZ, is also huge: see it on Google Maps. I've been there in 2007.

Chris, you have realy nice car. In fact, I love Golf! But where are stars of EU and motorway picture in the middle?

By the way, yesterday I had lock-on in snow with Golt for 2 hours.

It looks like one of the Baťa`s cities. I have never been there, but many times in Prague.

I seem to recall a thread where he showed us a picture of his car but I can't for the life of me remember where it was. Or the make of the car. All I remember was that it's white and it's a small van type thing because that way he avoided paying the astronomically high tax rate for a regular sedan/small car. Unless I'm confusing him with someone else.

I have always been saying that there should be separate driver-training schemes for women. Or better, that women should be banned from driving motor vehicles whatsoever.

You don't need to know Polish to understand this guy's frustration.

Speaking of which... what kind of car do you people drive?

I've got an old one, but I look after it well. I've got a '94 Volvo 940 Wagon. <3

http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/2324/dscf1797.jpg



This is the photo of the driver's console. I love the way older cars made consoles; I hate the new cylinder style that surrounds metres and gauges. It seems like VW and Volvo are both sticking to the flat-panel display, though, which I like. Note the gas gauge on the left as saying empty; I never bothered to fix it after buying it because it's a needless cost. I can get about 650km to a tank, I never let it go more than 500 before filling it. I use my mileage counter as my gas gauge . It works just as well.





Being a wagon fan, though, if I could have any car in the world right now it would probably be the VW 2010 Golf wagon. Although I really do like the regular 2010 Golf or 4 door GTI. Alas, I can't afford any of them right now...

We once had a rental with Illinois plate. It was a tiny Chevrolet Aveo which we rented in Spokane, WA

Smaller (about 2,0-2,5 km2), but very impressive sight (especially at night with 1000's of lights) is also Schwechat refinery close to Vienna, motorway A4 runs about 2,5 km directly beside.

Which are interesting "industrial" motorways - means they run through or right beside large industries? I would guess going through Rotterdam port must be pretty interesting?
